Review: The Bathing Garden's Lemon Curd & Rose Milk

Apologies for being MIA for the last few days...I busted my knee somehow and have had a hard time getting around. It's still really sore, but I need to get back into blogging! We also skipped going to the movies Thursday-Sunday because, up until Friday, we had seen everything there was to see! We really tried, but barring going to the second-run movie theater, we had nothing left!

As I have thoroughly documented throughout this blog, I am a fan of lemon scents. We are a pro-lemon household. The zestier, the better. The juicier, the better. Lemons make my heart sing.
Welcome to a post about what I believe is my favorite scent in the entire world of wax.

The Bathing Garden's Lemon Curd & Rose Milk is absolutely stunning. It's another one of those pretty scents, and yet you wouldn't normally think they go together. Lemon curd and rose milk? Weird! But I tell you this, waxy friends, the two scents pair extraordinarily well together. The lemon is tart and strong. The rose is fragrant yet powdery. This is not "milky," but silky, soft and delicate. It is my favorite scent in all of wax.

It also has a gorgeous presentation. The two-toned wax colors, glitter on the top, and rose petals in between the top layer...ugh. I cannot sing this scent's praises enough. It's just so, so good. I can see many people not liking this scent, though, perhaps because it's too powdery, perhaps because the lemon is too tart. For me, it's perfection.

The Bathing Garden's Lemon Curd & Rose Milk
Cold Rating10/10; the bright, citrusy lemon mixes insanely well with the gentle, silky rose scent...it's divine. Heavenly. Truly pretty.
Lit Rating10/10; perfect in every way, in my opinion. You get each not by itself as well as individually.
Throw Rating7.5/10; the throw is above average, but not a 10/10. I don't think it has to be, though, and if it was 10/10, I wouldn't like it as much.
Overall Rating10/10; averages be damned, this scent is the greatest. I can't believe how good it smells. It's got longevity, too, so if you start it before bed, expect to smell it in the morning. Stunning. Great combo.

  3. Now I really, really want this one. The "curd" part made it sound like it leans bakery, but if it's tart lemon, bring it on!

  5. Well this sounds interesting. At first the 'rose' had me turned off because I'm just not a floral fan, but hmmm, might have to try this someday.

  6. OK, I know you posted this nearly two years ago, but I am melting this for the first time right now, and I love it so much that I googled it and found this entry! I LOVE THIS MELT! It's insanely amazing and I need huge stashes of it! I got it as a sample in my last order, so I hope she'll be offering it again soon. I would also love to try it in her body products. HEAVEN.

    1. Isn't it awesome?!? I love this scent so much, even at night! I hope she offers it again! She made scrubs in this scent at one point, maybe if we mass request them, she will make 'em again!! I agree with you, this one is HEAVEN!
